eek! Yup, it's a Dooney and Bourke vintage bag. 70's or 80's? I found it on etsy for a mere 30 bucks and still can't get over it!! I at first thought it might have been lost in the mail as it took ages and ages to come...but it did arrive. And I love it to pieces. :D It's so sturdy and solid. I love the shape of it!
OK...I apologize for the very gross pic in general of me. My hair decided to be a bit crazy, I see. And perhaps I should have taken my mom's suggestion and SMILED. XD Also, how bad is taking pics at night, with a flash??
This is my new coat. It was on Modcloth but I found it for cheaper on another site and nabbed it. It's not as warm as I was expecting but I really like the style so I'm happy with it :D
Another new item are the shoes...also from modcloth (yea, I'm obsessed!!!). However I got a 8.5 as people were saying they ran a bit small. They're comfy but my feet keep slipping out and they'll probably stretch...so I've ordered a size 8 to compare.
A + B in the Sea wrote a really good post recently about capsule wardrobes, quality, not buying every single thing you see, etc. Which I thought I would also write about.
I had a bit of a epithany the other day when I 90$ (on sale!!) modcloth dress I'd ordered arrived, and I realized it was made completely out of polyester. I had read this but I guess it just hadn't sunk in exactly what polyester was. Well, let's just say it's scratchy and see-thru and cheap, and I have a 20$ forever21 top in it. Besides that, the dress just didn't fit right and I'm sending it back. Then I went thru my modcloth wishlist and culled every single thing that was polyester (practicly half of it) and am now vowing to only buy things that are good quality. Especially online. ESPECIALLY when they're 90 dollar dresses!!! I want things that last...that have that expensive, lush, feel. And somehow polyester doesn't fit the bill. Silk, wool, cotton, cashmere. Yeah, that'll do! But polyester is the kiss of death.
So there's my little ramble for the day. See ya'll later!
